In Right from the Beginning, Pat Buchanan reveals who and what shaped his values, convictions, personality and what makes him believe as he does. He discusses his path to the pinnacle of national politics, serving in the Nixon, Ford and Reagan administrations. This thoughtful and entertaining autobiography also tells the story of another time in America. It is about the meaning of family and friends, of loyalty; it is about a Catholic education in the days of Pope Pius XII and growing up in the 1950s. A conservative classic, Right from the Beginning is an important window into a lost world of the recent past, a world largely unrecognizable to the modern age.
